UCCA organizes upwards of 300 public programs each year, in formats including discussions, workshops, and cinema and performing arts events, presenting groundbreaking cultural activity from around the world. Many programs connect to UCCA’s exhibitions, opening up the museum’s curatorial program to a wider audience through events that unpack and annotate the concepts and contexts behind these acclaimed shows. Other programs offer a wider survey of the contemporary cultural moment, through activities related to cinema, architecture, design, literature, modern dance, music, sound, and other fields, sharing with audiences the latest developments in the arts, and the humanities in general. Through its public programs, UCCA aspires to a vision of a cultural center for a broad and open community, centered on contemporary art while also expanding past its boundaries.
